TAILS Academy Reviews
See what our customers have to say about their experience at our facility with our team of pet care professionals.
"Gracie has loved her lessons She has loved all the trainers and interaction with everyone at the facility. I want to bring her out for more half days and learning experiences. Everyone has been so helpful."
"I love the one-on-one enrichment he gets at the Tails Academy. But also the exceptional teaching I receive in class."
"I have been bringing my dog to Think Pawsitive for 7 months since my dog, Cooper, was a puppy and the hidden gem of the facility is the TAILS Academy program. More than just daycare, the dogs get once on one training which has greatly improved his loose leash walking and impulse control. The difference is noticeable when I pick him up. He loves the swimming and enrichment sessions that he gets at each visit. The best part is how tired he is at the end of the day! The staff are wonderful and I know that he is good hands when I drop him off. I cannot speak more highly of it and would recommend TAILS in an instant."
My name is Princess Leia and I have been swimming at Think Pawsitive for 6 years. I love my weekly swims and really appreciate my mom and dad for taking me. Truth be told my brother and sister started before me for more than 7 years. I am a much better dock diver than they were but I don't like to brag. The staff are always so nice to me and even scheduled my appointments for mom and dad because they don't know the technology. The cool water is so warm it's like bath water. Come see me sometime on Saturday. It is a blast. Love Princess Leia!
"Our Black Labrador Skye loves TAILS Academy and all the wonderful instructors. She has been attending TAILS since she was about 3 months old, she's now 15 months currently. Skye learns so much at TAILS, from swimming, agility, treadmill (land and water), nosework, balance training, disc skills and leash walking. We are always complemented on how well behaved our dog is. I bring home fundamental skills that are written on her "report card" and practice with Skye often. The instructors are experienced, kind and compassionate to everyone and every dog that attends TAILS Academy."
"Our lab, Ollie, has been attending Tails since he was 10 weeks old and has continued to show great progress in his manners and increased confidence in social situations. We have received many comments about what a great puppy he is and we owe it all to Think Pawsitive. We love that the staff provide us with detailed daily progress reports, so we are informed about his day, what he did well, and what he needs more practice with at home. We have a great piece of mind knowing that every time we drop Ollie off, he is not only running around playing, but also continuing to learn manners and important skills. Ollie’s favorite Tails activities include practicing manners with Steph, swimming with Callie, learning how to walk nicely on a leash with Stephanie, and the enrichment sessions with Elizabeth. We could not speak more highly of the Tails Academy staff and volunteers."
"We have been training at Think Pawsitive for the last 6 years with our three dogs. Our newest pup, Skyler, has taken manners classes with Carli and is currently enrolled in agility classes and Tails Academy. Skyler loves going to Tails and she absolutely loves working all of the staff. All of her obedience training gets reinforced and she works on new skills as well. Skyler is a bit fearful of strangers and the Pawsitive staff have been great at helping us problem solve and work on getting Skyler more confident. We also train our two other pups, Bella and Sophie in nosework and agility. Each of them enjoy the classes and instructors. As owners we receive unparalleled instructions that help to train our dogs with positive reinforcement and allowing our dogs to learn and grow."
